Certainly a more potent westerly stream that this current one.
Just had a look through the event thread at the time and you reported unusually fine and small flakes for a westerly like that in the mid-afternoon period of the 16th.

Thanks for that link Syran. Should help kick start the oul memory into life! Just funny how I can't remember that event but can remember vividly the snow later that winter shortly before and during 'storm Emma'.

An interesting few days. Over now.

Thanks for all your contributions to the thread. Very enjoyable. Great pics and reports as usual. There will be other opportunities for all those who missed out before the Winter is done so don't be putting away the mittens and hot water bottles just yet.

Yes watch for 2 potent Northerlies

One St Patrick's Day when it's always freezing

And of course Easter

But definitely the end of January delivers snow in the Sligo area quite often.

Traveled to/from Limerick last night, from Sligo. Snow cleared from the roads, but plenty still in the fields, ditches, and hard shoulder, on the roads around Knock Airport, and the Knock Bypass.

Traveled though Knock it's self today, and still plenty shoveled up against walls, and in the corners, etc, etc. Very evident that they got a good dump of it.
